The first (and only) season of NBC’s short-lived comedy series Animal Practice will receive its UK premiere on ITV2 on Monday February 11th at 8:30pm, it has been announced.
Created by Alex Tanaka and Brian Gatewood, Animal Practice follows Dr. George Coleman (Justin Kirk), a top-dog New York veterinarian. With an unorthodox style of operating, George’s success comes from his undeniable gift with animals of all kinds. That is, all but the human kind. Dorothy Crane once held the key to George’s heart, but today she also holds the key to the family business as she takes over Crane Animal Hospital. Not only is she George’s new boss, but her romantic history with him and her lack of experience with animals is seriously cramping his style. Dorothy is whip-smart and ambitious, and she’s going to make George pay for the past. Needless to say, he’s determined not to make any changes in his (animal) kingdom – which includes poker games with a resident capuchin monkey.
